Forum: etree Subject: What do you think about soundchecks ?

I'm in the middle of tracking out a bunch of old Chucklehead shows, and some of them include a couple songs from the soundcheck. I'm curious to know what people think about soundchecks. Are they worth including ? Should I just tack it on at the end of the show, and indicate the tracks in the text file so people can leave them off if they don't want them ? Leave the whole thing as one long track (13 minutes in this particular case) ? Upload it like a seperate show ? Or just don't bother including it all becuase no one cares ?

I'd say include them if you have them, and probably put the files at the end of the actual show material, clearly notedas to what they are in the txt. They're a bonus addition to the historical record. :)

I suggest you include them, tracked separately from the rest of the show. Completists will be delighted. Fans will appreciate what is often a unique aspect of a band. Some soundchecks are of great historical significance in their own right -- consider the Grateful Dead's soundcheck jam at Watkins Glen. Sometimes what goes on during the soundcheck gives insight into how the band works. There's a lot to gain by including them, and nothing to lose.

I think that, first and foremost, the band/artist should be consulted (if possible) to see if it's OK to put the soundchecks in. I know one or two bands that are OK with taping and the LMA, but don't want soundchecks uploaded, as they may not be representative of what the band wants to sound like in concert.

Hm, good point then- I assumed that if a band let it be taped with the rest of the show, they wouldn't have minded. If the specific bands you're thinking of are represented here, let me know and I can add something to their notes here.

I'm generally mildly in favor of them -- hey, more music never hurt no one! But it probably depends in part on the band, the quality, etc. Basically, I think it boils down to a judgement call.

If I were including it, I'd leave it with the show, I'd definitely track it, and I'd mark it somehow so that people who don't want it can easily omit it. But maybe that's just me.
